Swift Transportation Company Provides Earnings Guidance for the Third Quarter and Fourth Quarter of 2015 and Revises Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Swift Transportation Company provided earnings guidance for the third quarter and fourth quarter of 2015 and revised earnings guidance for the year 2015. For the third quarter, the company’s adjusted EPS is now expected to be $0.30 to $0.33 compared to the $0.43 average estimate.

For the year, the company said it now expects adjusted earnings between $1.43 and $1.52 per share compared to the previous guidance range between $1.64 and $1.74. The company said the change was due to the development on prior year accident and workers' compensation claims and the corresponding impact to reserves which is expected to be a $0.07 in third quarter; the settlement of a class action lawsuit of $0.02 in third quarter; the settlement of a previous lawsuit resulting in a $0.03 charge in third quarter, expenses on new tractors received late in second quarter due to delivery delays, resulting in a significant backlog of tractors being processed for trade or sale which is expected to have an impact of approximately $0.05 to $0.06 in the second half of 2015; and a reduction in expected volumes of seasonal project business in fourth quarter due to customers' recent logistical changes which could have an impact of $0.05 to $0.06.

Swift Transportation Company Enters into Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement

On July 27, 2015, Swift Transportation Company entered into a Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement replacing existing Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated June 9, 2014. The 2015 Agreement includes a $600.0 million revolving credit facility and a $680.0 million first lien term loan A, each maturing July 2020. The 2015 Agreement replaced the undrawn $450.0 million revolving line of credit maturing June 2019, the $500.0 million first lien term loan A ($485.0 million face value outstanding as of closing) maturing June 2019, and the $400.0 million first lien term loan B ($395.0 million face value outstanding as of closing) maturing June 2021 under the 2014 Agreement. Upon closing, proceeds from the Term Loan A, $200.0 million drawn from the Revolver, and $3.0 million cash on hand were used to pay off the then-outstanding balances of the first lien term loan A and B tranches under the 2014 Agreement and certain transactional fees associated with the 2015 Agreement. This resulted in outstanding balances on the Term Loan A and the Revolver of $680.0 million and $200.0 million, respectively, upon closing the 2015 Agreement. Under the 2015 Agreement, the interest rate applicable to the Revolver and Term Loan A is subject to a leverage-based grid and equaled the LIBOR rate plus 1.75% at closing, which is the same as the rate applicable to the revolving credit facility and first lien term loan A tranche under the 2014 Agreement at closing. The previous term loan B tranche under the 2014 Agreement accrued interest at the LIBOR rate plus 3.00%, reducing to 2.75% once leverage is below 2.00, with a 0.75% LIBOR floor. The financial covenants are unchanged from the 2014 Agreement. Principal payments for the Term Loan A are due quarterly in the amount of $3.625 million on September 30, 2015, $6.625 million starting December 31, 2015 through December 31, 2016, and then increasing to $12.25 million per quarter for 2017 thereafter through maturity, when the balance is due.
